3M, Rush Set CNG Tank Partnership

3M and truck dealership Rush Enterprises announced an agreement to pursue the design, manufacture and installation of compressed-natural gas tanks for use in Classes 6-8 trucks in North America.

3M, which displayed its tanks at last week’s ACT Expo in Long Beach, California, launched its first CNG tank last year, incorporating its nanoparticle-enhanced resin technology to engineer tanks that are up to 30% lighter and have up to 10% more storage capacity than alternatives.

“By pairing a leading materials-technology company with the largest commercial vehicle dealership networks, we hope to achieve scale as well as move the needle in customer service and innovation, dealership Chairman and CEO W.M. “Rusty” Rush said.
